He loved being around water, whether it was water skiing, boating, or fishing. His favorite places to travel were Rocky Fork Lake, Lake Erie, and the family property in Sevierville, Tennessee.

He had a special place in his heart for all animals, especially his dogs.

Woodworking was also one of his hobbies, which he used to help his wife make decorative wreaths. He was an assistant in many local Girl Scout Camps, including Camp Stonybrook in Waynesville, Camp Whip Poor Will in Morrow, and Camp Butterworth in Maineville. He continued as an assistant even after being stricken with Parkinson’s disease. He is preceded in death by his parents George and Zelma Coffman. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Cherle, one daughter Karen Coffman, and one granddaughter Katelyn Abney. There was always a special place in his heart for his daughter and granddaughter.
